How to do introductions:
- You are in a little group where you know all the other parties and they do not know each other.
- You say, “Oh by the way, Millicent, this is Evelyn” they say hi and you move on and everyone is fine.
- You are in a little group where you know all the other parties and they do not know each other. But you are hosting a party and need to mingle with your other guests.
- You say, “Evelyn, this is Millicent- she went to college with me. Millicent, Evelyn plays on my recreational croquet league with me” And now they know something about each other and you can move on.
I am also a big fan of the walk into a big room of people and someone reels off everyone’s name. At least then you have been “introduced” and can reintroduce yourself later.
Whatever you do, just do something! I will tell you all about the crazy introducing rules that we don’t have to follow anymore on Friday.
